We work with children, aged 4–7, using our fun and participative Helping Hands programme.
The aim of the programme is to increase the understanding of feeling safe and to explore and promote behaviours which will contribute to a safe environment. The programme is a 5–6 week course full of activities and worksheet materials for mothers and children to engage together.
Helping Hands helps children:
- increase their self esteem and confidence
- explore and express feelings, make choices and solve problems
- understand their right to feel safe at all times
- increase their abilities in safety planning
- identify their own personal support network
- explore how their behaviour can affect the feelings of others, and
- identify healthy ways to manage conflict.
By working with children using Helping Hands, we can help them:
- understand that feelings are okay
- express strong feelings without violence, and
- practice non violent problem solving skills.
